Publisher's Summary

The first page of Joel C. Rosenberg's first thriller, The Last Jihad, put listeners inside the cockpit of a hijacked jet, coming in on a kamikaze attack into an American city...but it was written nine months before September 11, 2001. As Jihad unfolds, an American president finds himself in a war with Saddam Hussein over terrorism and weapons of mass destruction...but it was published five months before the actual war with Iraq began.

Rosenberg's second novel, The Last Days, opens with the death of Yasser Arafat and an American president pressing for peace in the Middle East...but it was published 13 months before the actual death of Yasser Arafat.

Now comes The Ezekiel Option, an explosive new political thriller that literally feels ripped from tomorrow's headlines. With Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat out of the way, a dazzling era of security and prosperity seems to have come to the Middle East. With the help of an American president trying to spread freedom and democracy, the Israelis and the Palestinians have signed a historic peace agreement. Violence is down. Their economies are booming.

But a new evil looms on the horizon. A dictator is rising in Russia. Iran is feverishly building nuclear weapons. A new Axis of Evil is emerging, led by Moscow and Tehran. And Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy - two senior White House advisors - find themselves facing the most chilling question of their lives: Is the world rushing to the brink of an apocalypse prophesied more than 2,500 years ago?

Listen to more in the Political Thrillers Series.

What the Critics Say

"The book is better written and more complex than Left Behind, to which it will inevitably be compared." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Joel Rosenberg is a fraud"

    Rosenberg leads us into the story from the first book in the series and one wants to go on to see where it leads. But when he gets to the third book, he then tries to convert the reader into accepting Christ and shows in his book both Jews and Muslems who have done so and thus are "saved" in the final days.

    I won't read anything else he has written.

    Story
    "A little overboard. (Small details of book revealed)"

    The book weaves very well with the previous two in the series, but this one takes a much deeper turn into religion. It was a good read until the very end when (SPOILER ALERT) ice rockets from space begin to attack.

    "Disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Patrick G. Lawlor?

    No.


    What could Joel C. Rosenberg have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I am not sure. I listen to audiobooks three hours a day while I commute. I judge the quality of a book by how quickly it makes the time pass. Listening to this book to me was pure torture. I cannot explain exactly why. It was a combination of the plot and the performance.I found the plot boring, the writing boring, and the performer borderline annoying.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There were pieces of the book that started to catch my interest that they were always short-lived.

    Story
    "A thinly disguised sermon."
    What disappointed you about The Ezekiel Option?

    Misrepresented genre. A Christian novel was unexpected.


    What was most disappointing about Joel C. Rosenberg’s story?

    Poor story quality. Distracting Bible quotes & prayers. Born again Mossad agents?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Patrick G. Lawlor’s performances?

    Maybe


    What character would you cut from The Ezekiel Option?

    Just about all of them are unlikeable & totally unrealistic.


    Any additional comments?

    I am returning it.

    "Billy Graham asks question"

    The author has become a born again writer. Just as annoying, every second sentence is a question. Don't buy this one.
